A sanctuary on top of the city

The Joseph, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Nashville reserved its rooftop for wellness, as it houses Rose spa, a 50-foot outdoor pool and a living green wall. Sitting on the 21st floor, Rose provides an airy sanctuary above the city with bleached oak, woven fabrics, floral art, high ceilings and soft neutral colors.

The 5,500-square-foot spa has six treatment rooms, a salon and an expansive fitness center. A coed relaxation lounge lets you to ease into your spa day with a steaming cup of tea and some peace and quiet. A pre-treatment foot bath also helps to set the stage for bliss.

When it comes to treatments, Rose offers a range of options, from the Healing Herbs and Botanicals Massage that uses CBD to ku nye, a Tibetan rubdown that incorporates cupping, kneading and acupressure along with warm crystals and poultices. All of the services have a singular goal: to help you get back to your natural state.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The signature Rose Indulgence includes a soothing chakra-balancing back treatment, a tension-zapping scalp massage and revitalizing meridian-tapping techniques. Acupressure with hot poultices and rose quartz crystal restores your skin’s glow. Your face will be treated to a garnet scrub and a cooling jade mask to help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Each treatment at Rose begins with a dry foot scrub followed by a foot bath infused with rose petals and house-grown botanicals. And each one ends with sound healing. The vibrations from Tibetan sound bowls are supposed to help release blockages and restore the energetic flow within and around the body.
  • Circulate among the spa’s steam room, ice fountain and experience showers. The latter are especially worth your time. The showers have multisensory features; for example, the “Tropic” setting immerses you in exotic fragrances and a hot rainfall.
